Buying a Home
The Resource For Home Buyers
Buying a home is a huge step in a person's life and the process can initially seem like an intimidating task. Some steps you may take will cut through the rhetoric to discern fact from fiction in the home buying process. While buying a home is an exciting "next step" in life and sure there are certainly many things to think about, they shouldn't take away from this memorable experience. Both Prudential Georgia Realty and Hank Bailey, Associate Broker, can provide you with as much of a stress free experience as possible! We want to be your resource!
Use The Web
Our site, as well as other resources provided by Prudential Georgia Realty and Georgia MLS can help you do research into any home listed for sale in the N.E. Georgia while at work, home, or sipping a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop late into the evening! We can provide anything you might need from local governments to schools (public, private, and home school co-op information), community information, and regional specific ideas that might help you in your search for a new home. We encourage you bookmark us and stay with www.AthensGaHomesForSale for all your needs. Beyond this site you may find two leading real estate blogs in Athens a huge resource as well. These are located at www.trulia.com/blog/hank_bailey and AthensGaProperties.com.
Know Your Limits
It can be frustrating to find your first, next "dream home" or step-up home and then not be able to get financing to make that offer to purchase. Lending guidelines have changed dramatically over the past two years and if you have an accurate view of what your abilities are in financing a home, it will add peace of mind to the entire process for you. Russ Tanner at www.RussTannerLoans.com can help you understand just how much house you can afford. Russ, who is affiliated with Adams and Associates Residential Lending Group, is able to make fast decisions with in-house loan underwriters and local appraisers who know this market.
Get a Home Inspection
Home inspections will often go through the current status and life expectancy of a home's furnace, roof, and foundation to give you an accurate description of what kind of condition a home is in at the time of purchase. A home warranty is also a good investment when purchasing a home. We can help you find a good home warranty and help negotiate this into a purchase contract to possibly be paid for by the seller. If the seller won't pay for it then it will come out of seller paid commissions. We do this to say "thank you" for buying through us. Again, Prudential Georgia Realty is one of the largest brokerage companies in the state of Georgia so the resources and technology we offer is far above the standard!
